    I was running two identities, one for my comcast and one for yahoo! using Outlook Express. Yesterday I downloaded the XP updates, the only difference I noticed after downloading them was that the login screen showed how many messages I had unread in Outlook. I decided also to put my yahoo and comast emails together, so I deleted the Yahoo! Identity, but my login screen still says 40 new messages. Are those messages still somewhere on my computer? Help please

    Go to Start > Run, and type:
    regedit

    Find:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\UnreadMail

    In each account, double-click the UnreadMail key and set the value.
